  1. yes dr shipman buried hundreds of his mistakes!! what a lovely house. last night i dreamt of crunchy nut cornflakes and now i can’t stop eating them!!

  2. That is one hell of a vine.

    The little one kind of makes me say “aww.”

  3. I think the giant vine is a wisteria—should be spectacularly beautiful when it blooms maybe in April (England seems to be earlier than New York–it would bloom in May in NY). They warn you when planting wisteria that it can knock down whatever it’s growing on. But the tree version of wisteria is not quite as wonderfully profuse!
